Pours a nice golden color with a white hue and decent head into my glass. First time I've seen these cans on the shelf.

Balanced pine notes come through in the nose. Just a touch of citrus but not much. Buttery malt as well.

The balance carries over to the taste. Think a traditional American IPA, pre-citrus explosion. There's that decent pine bite and buttery malt.

It leaves a crisp mouthfeel with lingering pine and butter notes.

Very nicely done. I suspect the score of 81 may be based on the fact that it's not a citrus bomb. I think it works very well in the can.

No canning info visible. Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip pint.

a: Hazy orange with an inch tall white head which receded to even surface foam and semi-dense lacing.

s: Mild fruit cup (i.e. pear and other light fruit in combination)

t: Hop bitterness with some power over a light to medium malt base. Bitterness lingers somewhat. Spice notes appear later.

m: Medium, good body, lots of carbonation tingle.

o; A good IPA, bitterness-wise on the upper tier of a single, not a lot of hop flavor other than the subtle spice which appears near the end, but plenty of bite, a refreshing and stimulating brew. Fine for dinner or sipping.
